Stanley 42W Saw Set.
This is an extra-clean example of this useful Stanley saw set. It's very similar to the more common 42X but lacks the double-action clamping device the 42X has. Instead, the 42W has the ability to adjust where on the tooth the hammer put pressure, producing a more even set and reducing the risk of breaking a tooth. This is an excellent example with almost all original finish and in perfect working orde.r

The flat ovolo profile is quite useful for general woodworking tasks like breaking the edge of a shelf, using along a table top, etc. This is a well-used plane with a slightly short blade but no damage or neglect. It has a cabinet pitch blade and still has a tight mouth. It's an easy-to-use molding plane you will find very useful

It has the circular wedge finial, broad flat chamfers along the top, and a pronounced cove along the step. The plane has seen use but has a sharp, well cared-for blade. It won't take much work at all to have it up and running again if you so choose. It's a 200+year old working molding plane

Nice Beech and Boxwood Moving Fillister by T. Tileston.
This plane were made in Boston by Timothy Tileston, a well-known, top quality planemaker working from around 1802-1860. This plane's mark dates to 1840 or before based on the information in AWP-IV. The plane has a beech body and solid boxwood fence. The blade is skewed, the entire working corner boxed as well. It has a tight, functional depth stop and dovetailed nicker to allow it to cut cross-grain. The blade needs to be ground and has some pitting that's light and can be lapped. It's an early plane and well worth the small effort to restore it to working order.

Outstanding 18th Century Ogee Molding Plane by MADOX, London.
This plane was made by William Madox, a well-documented London planemaker who worked from 1748-1775. This is an outstanding plane in every regard. I'd be happy to find a late 19th century plane in this condition, never-mind a mid-18th century plane. The plane cuts a big, curvy 1 3/4in wide by 1in deep ogee. It has seen some use for sure- the blade is a bit worn in the high-use areas and there are a few very light hammer marks. There's also a few small holes in the sole where a temporary addition was made to the fence to make the profile a bit narrower. These are small cosmetic blemishes only, but should be noted because otherwise the plane is pretty much pristine. The blade is as clean as you could hope to find in a molding plane of any age. The plane's body has the beautiful hallmarks of a mid-18th century plane including the deep cove at the step, precise wide chamfers along the hand-hold, a round wedge finial, and gouge cuts at the transition points. It's a beautiful plane, a piece of history, and definitely usable should you choose to put it to work.

Interesting & Unusual *Working* Matched Pair of H. Chapin Small Side Beads.
These planes cut 1/8in and 1/4in beads, both very desirable, useful sizes. The planes match and look to have always been together. They are both in working conditon with sharp blades ready to go out of the box. I've tested both in my shop and was very happy with how they cut and the smooth profiles they left behind. Interestingly, both planes have partial paper labels from the hardware store that sold them. Both planes were made by H. Chapin at the Union Factory near Hartford, CT. They were sold a few dozen miles to the south by the J. E. Bassett & Co Hardware Store located at 236 Chapel Street in New Haven. The Bassett Company dates back as early as 1784, changing ownership several times until John E. Bassett came into the firm in 1885. For several decades the firm operated as Bassett & Jarvis, still on Chapel Street. The 265 Chapel St. address seems to date to the 1860s, based on an advertisement I found in the 1865 Yale Courant publication. Further searching dug up a detailed history of the company and interview with Mr. Bassett. It's a great pair of planes in perfect working order and in two useful small sizes

This plane was made by the Kingston, ON planemaker J.P. Millener & Co. It's not listed in Elliot's guide to American wooden planes, nor in Goodman's guide to British molding planes. That's because it's Canadian. Hopefully this will prevent you wasting 20 minutes trying to find the maker's mark as I did. The plane was probably intended to be a 1in dado, but it's really 15/16in. It's in good shape with a perfect depth stop, some wear, and a good blade. It'll work if you need an odd size like this

I's definitely professionally made based on the high quality of the build. It's an interesting, early plane in excellent condition.

Massive Adjustable Rabbet Plane by Geo. Burnham, Amherst, MA.
This plane is 16in long and 5 1/4in wide. It has an adjustable fence and depth stop. The blade is skewed and can cut a rabbet up to 3in wide. It's a massive plane made from a beautiful piece of beech. It's in excellent condition overall and has seen very little use, if any. The blade is in decent shape- it needs a grind and has pitting in back of the working area but it's usable. The flaw is the wedge- it's a replacement and fits well enough to hold the blade in place but it's not close to original. It needs a bit of care to sharpen the blade and ideally a proper replacement wedge. The rest of the plane is in such amazing conditon, and it's such a rare size and style, that it's definitely worth the work to make it proper and usable again.
